Fashion bleeds, stains and frees, spreading all life's scum and sleaze.
Spitting fire, in the eyes, of the least suspecting patrons.
Turning cold, with control, killing everyone who knows
Standing by, in the aisles, watching recent complications.

(repeat)

You can hear their shouts from cars, see cigars burn in trendy bars, Flicking ashes on the heads of teenage kids with poorly tuned guitars.

(repeat)

    General CommentI think Eric Bachmann was probably in some trendy bar, surrounded by emo-kids with Spock haircuts and tight shirts, and penned this song out of disgust. Fashion defines the scene in a lot of cases. And that is sad.

    General CommentI couldnt disagree more. I think what he's aying with this song is that most fashionable people, (ie shouting from cars, in trendy bars) would flcik ashes on (metaphorically speaking) on the heads of teenagers trying to play something creative or different. I think the song in general is sayign fashin bleeds out diversity, through random attack on whats different pretty much.

    one way or another though, its a wicked song :P

    General Commenti agree with atrophied. besides, who's got a problem with emo kids with spock haircuts and tight shirts? i don't(quite the contrary, actually). anyway, i think you're being rather stereotypical, clutch, which is beautifully ironic considering what you were attempting to say.
